Miami County Community Foundation
Announces 2016 Grant Opportunities Without Deadlines

The Miami County Community Foundation (MCCF) is offering many granting opportunities for charitable organizations in 2016. Most of the applications have no deadlines, and those seeking grant dollars are able to submit applications all year round. Applications are available online or at the MCCF office at 13 E. Main Street in Peru.

A “Sustainability Award” is an opportunity to reward organizations that have the foresight to plan for the future. A $5,000 endowment grant will be awarded competitively to a Miami County nonprofit demonstrating leadership, management, programming, and a desire to encourage donations to their own permanent endowment fund. Awards are for organizations that do not have a permanent fund with the Community Foundation.

A $14,000 Impact Grant is for an organizations seeking funds to support a large project. This grant is designed to support organizations that are planning a new project or program, or looking to expand their services. Charitable organizations that are interested in applying for an Impact Grant must first submit a Letter of Intent and one page project summary.

Also available are Community Support Grants which assist organizations seeking grants in the range of several hundred to several thousand dollars. These grants are designed to be awarded to many organizations and provide support throughout the community.  

“We are excited to offer different types of grants that have no application deadline,” said Connie Cutler, Director of Development for the MCCF. “The Boomerang Sisterhood grant application derives from our women’s giving circle, and those applications will be available later in the year,” Cutler added.
